Summer Paintings

This is the first summer we have spent on land in six years, and the mate has been delighted with the opportunities to set up the easel on surfaces that are neither swinging at anchor or pitching in the swell. The painting above is a remembered image from the kitchen window at a Colorado family reunion. The one below is close to home, looking through the nearby shipyard to an urban landscape.

This painting really has the heat of the day in it. I could feel the warmth radiating out of the fields in the foreground. Nice!

The storm scenes from the previous post are gorgeous! Love the stylization of the forms!

Glad to hear that you've taken S/V Indigo out this year, too. That must have been a celebration.

I hadn't looked at your blog for a long time and didn't realize you had continued on with it. I'm so glad -- now I can find out what you are up to between critique meetings.

You sound as if you've been getting out a lot since the knee healed. We walked downtown to an open air event today -- first time for me to resume that kind of outing. What joy!
